    make sure the settings are right first off, the high pass filter, subsonic filter.

    how ar eyou gains set?

    what headunit are you using?

    what kind of box?

    does the sub look like its reaching full potential or is it barely moving?

    sounds like it is probably as simple as doing some tuning on the amp and HU.

    Some HUs (not sure about yours) have an option to have the subwoofer turned on or off or give it a volume control. search to see if yours has this.

    it sounds like amp settings or reverse polarity on the subs means the subs are out of phase

    turn it all the way down, then slowly turn it up. you can get hurt by doing that.
